Vincent Soo

Trauma Alchemist


Hi there!

​I'm Vincent Soo aka Trauma Alchemist 

I help working professionals to heal from the emotional pain of their childhood trauma and complex trauma. I work with individuals to transform and heal from their traumatic experiences, turning their pain and suffering into strengths, resilience and growth.   


I am not just a typical trauma recovery coach and therapist. Having experienced trauma in my childhood and teenage years, I have embarked on a purpose-driven mission to help individuals and couples recover from their traumatic experiences. I envision a world where people did not need to mask symptoms of mental health conditions, and are empowered to live an authentic, fulfilled, and purpose-driven life. 

I am passionate about helping adults and youths with depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and other mental health issues. He does more than just therapy; he leads two support groups where people can find understanding, support, and knowledge, making their future brighter.


My Story...


Within less than a year of meeting my wife, the soulmate of my life, we got married!  However, first one year into the marriage we were fighting so much. In the attempt to resolve our perpetual problems, both of us kept trying to voice out our opinions and frustrations, but no one was really listening. The argument got more and more heated and we started to use all kinds of unhelpful ways to bring our points across such as criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling. Both of us were so frustrated to the point that we told each other, “If we are not going to change, we are going to call it quits.” We were desperate.

There was a turning point when we learned to accept our differences, to be honest with ourselves and embrace vulnerability with each other - being authentic in our relationship has helped us rebuilt our foundation of our marriage - it is the key to our long-lasting happy marriage.

For the past 16 years, I have helped married couples in their 20s to 50s, who are mostly working professionals and entrepreneurs, married for 5 years and above, who are experiencing marital challenges, or involved in extra-marital affairs, I have coached them to rebuild connection, resolve conflicts and restore love for each other to enjoy a fulfilling marriage. 

My wife, Josephine, and I just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary on 28th of December 2022.
